Dinki: The ones that should have been put down were the idiots in the car that thought it was OK to drive right up to an elephant.


Or they were driving along, minding their business, and the elephant, which was later found to be under the influence of a massive influx of testosterone, came out of the brush and attacked the car. But facts don't fit your world view, do they?

This.


Again, where did you get the idea they drove up to the elephant? The elephant is in the road. The car is in the road.

Honestly, you guys are trying too hard.

As far as not backing up, I imagine the occupants of the car were staying still in an attempt to avoid antagonizing the animal further.

Nobody deserved to die. Not the elephant, not the people in the first car, not the people in the second car. Horrifying and tragic all around.

bongmiester: and why did they not drive away?  well it's said their brains shrunk 10 sizes that day


correct.  They had plenty of time when the elephant was on the right side of the vehicle.

This. After the initial hostility there is open road in front of the car.

My guess is that once you hit 40 mph or so you are out of danger.

Went on a safari in South Africa last March. We were parked checking out a pair of lions that were sitting atop a termite mound. The lions suddenly take off in a full sprint. We look to the left to see what scared them off. We were being charged by a massive, pissed off elephant! Our guide threw the jeep in reverse and floored it...right into a tree. Fortunately, the elephant stopped long enough for us to get unstuck and pointed in the right direction. We bravely ran away. You wouldn't think something that huge could be that sneaky, but he was nearly on top of us before we heard a thing. The thing most people ask about when you tell them you've been on safari is "weren't you afraid of the lions?" The lions were amazingly chill. Elephants, on the other hand, are assholes.

I'm going to make me a t shirt that says Elephants are Assholes.

It's succinct and catchy.

I shot an elephant last night.

How it got in my dick I don't know.

Lsherm: Ishkur: JohnnyC: We've only had "bang-bang" sticks of any kind for roughly 800 years and they really weren't any good until about 400-500 years ago. We (the human species) have been rocking the top of the food chain for a lot longer than that. The real weapon that put us there is our big ass brains

Actually, it probably started when we figured out how to throw a rock.

Man is the only animal that can throw things really far and accurate. That is a crazy ridiculous advantage. We kill at a distance. Evolutionarily speaking, having a monopoly of that that ability is fricken' god mode.

After we learned how to throw pointy things at animals, we stopped fearing them.

Tools.  The minute we figured out we could carry a pointy stick with our opposable thumbs and then stick them into something to kill it, we were gold.  Throwing things probably happened concurrently, surely someone noticed if you threw a rock at someone it hurt.


Perhaps someday we'll evolve to be able to hold a farking camera steady!

How freaking hard is it to hold the camera still?

The car you're in isn't moving... The car you're filming isn't moving... 

But the camera shakes like the guy holding it is having a seizure while being driven down an old bumpy, cobblestone road littered with pot holes and speed bumps.

Didn't have the sound on but I imagined some kid screaming "AWWWWW shiat!  AWWW shiat!  shiat JUST GOT REAL!!!! AAAW shiat!!"
